On these long summer days, we are spending more time outdoors. But who says we have to do without our creature comforts? Check out some of the gear that makes being outside a little, less, well, outside.

>> PaMu TWS Earbuds (PaMu)

Do you love a good run? Maybe a hike, kayak or even just some time in the gym? A lot of us like to listen to our favorite tunes while working out. But finding good earphones that can deal with sweat isn’t always easy.

The new PaMu TWS wireless earphones are easy to wear, truly have no wires (until you have to charge them, of course), and are sweat-proof and water-resistant. They also incorporate several must-have features, including hi-fi sound, auto-connects, touch control, auto pairing that lets you make calls and listen to music while your phone is in your pocket (or even further away), and an in-ear mic. Plus, they come with a portable charging pod that neatly fits your buds and doubles as a travel case, and more. padmate-tech.com

>> Flip 30 Recharger (Goal Zero)

If you’re looking for a charger, the Flip 30 is just the ticket. It’s about the size of a pack of gum, but can charge your phone up to three times (or a tablet once) per full charge of its own, which makes it an easy way to keep your electronics ready to go while you’re on the go. The Flip 30 fits easily in most purses or pockets and comes in a variety of colors. $49.95. goalzero.com

>> Lighthouse Micro Flash (Goal Zero)

Like to camp? Or maybe you just hate being caught in the dark? This tiny (it’s about the size of a large finger and weighs in at just over 2 ounces), clever light source really packs a lighting punch and is perfect for your car, closet or purse. It’s rechargeable by USB and has a dimmable lantern as well as a built-in 120-lumen flashlight. On its lowest setting, it can run for up to 170 hours. $24.99. goalzero.com
